    Vertu have launched a brand new Android super phone, it costs from £6750 or $11,303 when I convert the pounds price with XE converter.

    It has a Hasselblad certified camera, nope no idea what that is, plus it has speakers made by Bang and Olufsen and runs Kit Kat plus Vertu's exclusive concierge service. Wireless charging and a 4.7-inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution covered with 5.1-inches of 118 carat solid sapphire crystal glass.

    You'll get more out of a LG G3 which is considerably cheaper than the Vertu.

    David Beckham I believe had one, so do other millionaires, that's their target market, you just press a button and have a real 24 hour worldwide concierge service, want opera tickets in France one day and American football tickets for a game in the US the next, no problem etc.

    Just remember if their wasn't a market they wouldn't be making them. But personally I have always found the Vertu and the Tag Huer phones to look a bit odd.

    Hasselblad certified? Damn, I didn't think they'd lend their brand name to something as tacky as this. I wonder how much these things will actually sell though.

    Hasselblad make professional studio cameras.

    We have a beautiful 50 mega pixel Hasselblad digital back and it cost us nearly €20k here in our studio ...... and that's not including the cost of the lenses........

    That being said - I doubt the one on this god damn ugly Frankenstien phone is anything like as good as an S5 even ....

    Ah thanks, the story reports it MAY be a Sony camera unit so will be pretty good if it's one of their Exmoor R jobs? But that's all that's known, it also has a quad core Qualcomm at 2.3ghz but no mention of the model or RAM it has.

    And in regards to looks, I would take my Nexus 5 anyday over this thing! But hey as said, if their wasn't the market they wouldn't make it.
    The Vertu has too many angles and looks daft with the real leather on it. Why not make it out of some incredibly high grade metal?

    Vertu up to their odd looking expensive devices again. Still looks tacky even if I had the money.

    That was my first thought. For 11k, shouldn't it be better than the current phones on the market?

    Ultimate Android phone? That would be a 4.7" version of the LG G3 with the camera of the iPhone and stock Android. I would love if Apple would release iMessage to Android as well to sync up with my iMac/Macbook Pro and iPads. At least until someone comes out with a phone with no bezels.
